The 2019 SWQ Branch conference is now just days away and we have another high-quality program with nine CPD hours over two days.
Our YIPWEAQ program offers an opportunity for our younger professionals to deliver presentations at all our conferences and we are delighted to have the current Young Engineer of the Year, Haydn O’Leary from Toowoomba Regional Council presenting a paper on project learnings.
As you would be aware, we regularly address the issues surrounding the long-term financial sustainability of local government particularly as they relate to engineering decisions made by councils.
Our panel session for the Gatton conference sees an engineer, a councillor and a consultant take on this issue. Please be ready with your challenging questions!
We have presentations from local government:
Presentations for water:
Issues surrounding our roads:
And of great importance to all of us, please be at the Gatton Bowls Club (Sage on Hickey) for barefoot bowls and a couple of cold drinks. It is $5 to play with proceeds going to the President’s Charity, MS Queensland.
We will also be launching the IPWEAQ Bike Club with the inaugural ride over the award-winning Brisbane Valley Rail Trail! The 30km ride starts at Toogoolawah and finishes in Moore in what should take most of us about five hours.
So, join us and more than 120 other delegates from all 14 councils in the SWQ Branch region.
And thank you once again to the Goondiwindi Regional Council for hosting a satellite breakfast for the President’s Breakfast on Friday 8 February 2019!
